If you haven’t seen the fabulous East London drag documentary Dressed As a Girl – produced by Colin Rothbart, Chris Amos, Christopher Hird and World of Wonder – it’s now available on iTunes! Check out these videos and meet Jonny Woo & Holestar (who you may remember has blogged for the WOW Report), two of the stars of the movie.
Meet Jonny Woo:
Agent provocateur, drag artiste and legendary performer, Kent-born Jonny Woo is one of London’s most prolific entertainers and co-founder of the hugely popular Gay Bingo. Honing his craft in New York, Woo was a founding member of the NYC Downlow – Glastonbury’s first queer party tent. His show The East London Lecture documented the 90s explosion of Shoreditch, of which he was instrumental.
An openly queer woman and former serving soldier, Holestar challenges perceptions of gender by being a London’s foremost “bio” drag queen. In March 2015 she won “Best Drag Act” at the London Cabaret Awards, the first woman to do so.
